How do I stop roof or ceiling from cutting into room?

Recommended Posts

I am having an issue with roof or ceiling jetting down into rooms or out exterior wall into space. What am I doing wrong and how do I fix this problem? Any help is much appreciated!

Thank you.

Did you manually draw the roof? Make sure all your connections are good -- roof plane to roof plane.

 

And, post the plan.

Zip it. Delete extra stuff like symbols, cabinets etc.

As I suggested above, all your roof planes need to be properly joined. I did a couple, but still see the problems.

 

That's also a really poor roof design, so I'd fix the structural issues first, then work on joining things.

What Eric , not so tactfully,  meant was that your "turret" roof  has a number of holes , including one I can see from above in 3D , but also that there is no good way to get the water out from behind it , so you will need "crickets" or a different design ....

 

it also looks like you have placed some ceiling "holes " in there , as you have a small triangle floating out in space and when I click on it I get this 3 times....

I noticed you used solids for the trim detail shown highlighted.

A single Molding Polyline works well for this type of thing. Easy to position and change profile all at once.

Thank you Solver and Kbird1 for your comments, they are very helpful. The design is an existing house, I used the original blueprints to input design. I have a partner that has been working on this design with me. He was making interior changes when this problem accrued and passed it back to me. First time dealing with this issue. You have been very helpful. 

Thank you!

You may want to have the Client send you some photos if a Site visit isn't possible ...did they actually build the Roof that way?

Hi Mick,

yes the roof is built that way. ;/

we worked off of plans and photos, it was all fine until my partner made interior changes for the full home renovations.

Surprising ...internal gutter /downpipe perhaps?   that's a big area draining in behind that turret...

 

Get the ceiling fixed?

Yes I was able to fix it. It was mostly the ceiling and beams that my co-worker added in that area that was causing the problems. Thank you for all your help and suggestions. I have recommended that we change the back side of the roof line for better drainage, with the Wisconsin winters it’s not good to have all the snow sitting back in there either. That area has been bugging me from the beginning.
